Hi chicklets! woohoooo! hope you are well and happy! I am gooooood! We had a fabulous time at the memorial. I saw friends and family I haven't seen in years. the food was scrumptous. We had a bagpiper that brought us to tears...was it because she missed some notes or amazing grace (;) ) The weather was wonderful. My grandma would have loved it~

Other than that...just running errands and doctor appts and cleaning before we leave tomorrow for a camping trip. This is all we have planned for hte summer ;) Just happens to be right next to each other so we are gone for a long period of time.

Oh..yesterday was a nice suprise. My neighbor across the street....realllllllllly nice lady with a six yr old son who the boys adoreeeeeeee....invited us over to go swimming. Now...I really didn't want to go...I had picked up our 11 year old cousin from her daycare so she could entertain the boys so I could scrap a little and catch up on some emails and laundry. When she called I was like ugggggggghhhh. But we went since I haven't gotten to see much of her and they are leaving Fri for a month. It was such a nice time. She has a screened in porch with misters so we sat there...later in the day she made margaritas (her hubby wasn't drinking so kids were safe ;) ). We had snacks for the kids and they played in the was great.
I didn't get anything done...but ;)

Here are a few layouts I have done (go to my gallery for credits)

Bren Boone's stone washed acid papers etc

The next four I did as 5x7's for a book about my gran for my aunt and mom I am making.

Hi there, glad the memorial was such a good thing, I know it was hard but it is good to share the memories with those that loved her too.

Great pages but I will be glad when you go back to 12 x 12 :)

Hi, I was actually thinking about sending this to my Aunt Mildred, but since you said not to, I won't *grin* How about stirring the margaritas? I have no tiny umbrellas darnit! Thank you so much! ;)

Kim said...

So glad you had a great time, that the memorial went well and you got to see long time not seen friends. Awesome layouts and great template. Thank you so much for sharing.

SO glad you ended up relaxing with neighbors while having a nice time in spite of not having a desire to go. It is those little things that makes the difference between a lovely day & a blah day.

Of course you know I just love when you do rectangles. I definitely drool all over everything. (I got that group from your sale page dirt cheap! YIPPEE.) Of course your designs are always professional in its appearance & extremely versatile, which is as expected. The album pages are just going along as they enterpret your story visually. Your coordination of what page design to use when & where definitely enriches your album in the best way possible. I appreciate as a square designer your ability to move beyond your spector. You not only took the time to work on your prize, but to share the dynamic fruits of your labor with us. So glad I didn't miss this download. HUGS!!!
